What Do Interior Designers Do?
First and foremost, a Designers job is helping clients obtain the ideal environment for their circumstances. Interior designers draft project timelines and estimate costs, place orders for materials, and oversee the installation of design elements. In order to do that they need to meet with clients and listen to their vision and needs for their space. Do you want a farmhouse kitchen? They will make it happen. Are you not sure what you want? They can present ideas and options for your space. To be successful, our designers must be capable and confident when meeting with clients to assess the needs for a project, such as planning the desired design, costs, architectural issues, furnishings, layouts, or color coordination.
Once our Designers have collaborated with their clients on their dream design, our Designers get to work designing the space in 3D. This is a critical step in our Design process as it helps our clients see exactly what their space will look like before it goes into build. This way if changes need to be made, it will save our clients’ money, time, and headaches!
Now that the Design is approved and ready, it is time to make selections. The selection process can be overwhelming. However, our Designers make the selection process easy by presenting options based on the client’s style, taste, and needs. From light fixtures to cabinet hardware, our Designers know what’s trending and what will work within your budget.
Designers must be familiar with building codes, local regulations, and universal accessibility standards. They work with builders to define permanent aspects of a space, such as the room size and wall or window placement. During build, our Designers are communicating with contractors, ensuring that everything is running smoothly and according to plan. At project completion, they follow up with clients to ensure their satisfaction.
